Progressive Oversteer ZCP v Non-ZCP

I had my 2015 M3 for about 3 years - had the chance to drive it on the track about 6-7 times.

I now have the 2018 ZCP M3 - but have not yet had the chance to track or autocross it. However, today I drove it on some empty country roads outside of the Chicago area - and in making several sharp 90-degree right and left turns, with DSC fully off - I seemed to be able to slightly rotate or oversteer the car with very small "jabs" of the throttle (in a controllable way) and on a couple of occasions, the car would start to oversteer in a more sustained, but progressive and controllable way (although I was not by any means flooring the gas).

If I was on a track with a very large and flat run-off area, I'd have more confidence to test the limits and induce more oversteer - but until then I'm looking for experiences of those who have tracked/autocrossed both the non-ZCP and ZCP with similar tires (either PSS or PS4S) - and specifically - how much difference do you notice in terms of being able to better control the slide or do short bursts of pivoting the car in a turn with short jabs of the throttle on the ZCP vs. the Non-ZCP?

Thanks in advance for your feedback!
